Sci-Fi Wire recently found out that Sony is moving ahead with its proposed Venom spin-off, which will follow the adventures of Spider-Man's most popular nemesis. Zombieland co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were hired to write the screenplay.
In a recent interview, Wernick confirmed to Sci-Fi Wire that a draft of the film had recently been turned into Sony. The writer stated, "We've written two drafts of Venom, and the studio has it, and they're pushing forward in whatever ways they push forward."
When will the film go into production? Wernick said, "We're not sure, [but] we've turned in our two drafts." Will it have anything to do with the upcoming Spider-Man 4? "We can't really talk about that, unfortunately. Basically, the studio and Marvel and the Arads are taking our drafts and going beyond and figuring out what's the next step."
